Founded in 1983, IH Lake Como is a language centre affiliated to International House since 1995, recognised by the Italian, Exam centre for the University of Perugia (Italian) and for the University of Cambridge (English).
Our school is located in Merate, 35 kms North of Milan, but we provide language courses in companies and other locations outside our main office.
Merate is located 35 kms north of Milan, on a green hilly area dominating the river Adda and with the magnificent setting of Prealps. It is a residential town with a population of 15,000 inhabitants. There is also a famous astronomical observatory and not far from here you can still admire the ferry-boat invented by Leonardo.
This central point is perfect for visiting Brianza, Bergamo, Milan, Monza and Como. Venice is just over 2 hours by car or train, while Switzerland is about 50 kms away.
Our school is very close to the town centre and the railway station. The premises are stylish, air-conditioned and offer parking facilities. The atmosphere is friendly and professional with:
• 5 well-equipped classrooms with air conditioning
• conference room
• coffee area
• free wi-fi
All our teachers are mothertongue and coordinated by a Director of Studies. The communicative approach enables students to develop their skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) in real life and work situations.
We offer accommodation in hostafmily, B&B, apartments and hotels.
